A year has passed since my last Japanese jazz mix.. so decided to go big this time :)
Two hour mix, with lots of heavy sax and electric piano work!
First hour is traditional / acoustic, starting with a mix I did from different Minoru Muraoka and Hozan Yamamoto albums, it's shakuhachi jazz all the way Baby!!
The second hour is pure Fender rhodes, electric guitar bliss..
